do i need a lawyer to arbitrate?

no. some arbitrators are hesitant to arbitrate for self-represented parties but i am not one of them.

i am committed to access to justice + offering my arbitration services equally to all.

that said, it can often be very helpful to get legal guidance ahead of arbitration. often, parties who are hesitant to have legal representation at arbitration (for reasons ranging from cost to a desire to make their own case) benefit from getting some legal advice about the strength of their position upfront or help preparing certain materials.

arbitration can be costly + can have siginificant consequences. it is often helpful to get legal guidance even if it is not necessary.
